Moonlight and dinner



Two things I often have a hard time capturing well with my little camera are the moon and food. My inexperience comes into play I guess. My latest attempts are a little better but I still have a ways to go!

Fresh Snapper


Every year when we come to Largo we love going to the fresh fishery to get our
dinner to cook out. Yellowtail is always great and in abundance here. We've
gotten the snow crab claws as well as other things too. All I know is it's
hard to beat a few hours from here to the pan or grill. Definately the best!

Sweet Victory

During the NCAA basketball season the MSU Spartans become my "other" sons. I get very attached to them and follow them with the fervor of a Mom. This past weekend
starting on Thursday was the starting weekend of the NCAA tournament in which my boys are a 5 seed. It has been a great weekend of watching many close games decided
by only a point or two. It doesn't get any better than that unless it's topped off
by the Spartans ,being without 2 of their starters most of the game, winning a gut-out game to advanace to the Sweet 16 next weekend.
Yes, I am a happy camper today!

Far sighted


Too cute for my (Grampa's) glasses!

Cat delight


One more cutie from our trip to see the Kohler's. Dylan just loves his pets but especially Zoey because she is very elusive. When he sees her sitting on her perch on the sofa he squeals in delight and runs in pursuit of her. BUT she
is still quicker than he and usually escapes before he can show his obvious affection. Once in awhile she will tolerate
a little which just delights him. Lindsay says it is Zoey's elusiveness that piques his delight. She might be right on.

Tomorrow we start our winter sojourn to see our little guy Dylan. We'll arrive on Wednesday and have to come home on Sunday but, hey, anytime we get with him is precious to us. We have plans to visit the aquarium and perhaps downtown Philly on this visit. We're excited to see some big smiles and get some of his open mouth kisses and without doubt we'll be reading many, many books. Life doesn't get much
better than this!

Nature's bowl


This piece is "chillin" out on our lower patio. Mark found it on the course next to the tree it came off of and we took a walk one day to see it. Carried it home between the two of us and it's been down there since. It's 17" x 33 " and I'm just thinking about where it might go. I'm very into organic right at the moment so it's definitely right up my design aesthetic. When it finally moves into the house I'll have to take another picture of it in it's new home.
